Our proprietary Remote Control Monitoring (RCM®) system – developed by our SCS Technology division – is a cost-effective, web-based solution for the early detection of problems.

SCSeTools® is a web-based application platform that collects, monitors, views, charts, graphs, and manages data from more than 670 landfills to help facilities operate more
efficiently, continually gauging operational health, spotting trends that help determine when and what to investigate.

SCS Engineers, Tracer division offers remote monitoring and ambient air monitoring services as well.
